Fabreze Downy eau de Toilette

The use of perfumes goes back to ancient of days. Egyptians are one of the earliest civilizations on record  using fragrant oils and balms in religious ceremonies . They were also the first to develop a method to create glass containers to store them. 

Egyptians also became the first civilization to make the leap from using perfume in religious practices to a daily ritual on themselves. The earliest scent known to be used was created from cinnamon and honey. Think about it, they walked around smelling like Cinnabons. But don't laugh too quickly. It has been proved through scientific studies that men find the smell of cinnamon "exciting" so maybe the Egyptians in ancient of days were more in tune to their olfactory than many of us are today.

I have recently discovered a product that seems to have the same effect on men as cinnamon.


There are two items that are a must to have while traveling on vacation or anytime you find yourself living out of a suitcase. Downy Wrinkle Release is one and Febreze Fabric Refresher the other.  While on vacation I picked up a bottle of each, one saved me from ever touching an iron and the other freshened up pieces of clothing I wore more than once. Febreze has a new scent Downy April Fresh.

After enjoying a dinner cruise my last evening in Portland, I returned back to the hotel to clean out the rental car. I did a light general cleanup finishing off by spraying the inside of the car with some Fabreze, Downy April Fresh scent. I pulled into the car rental place and a gentleman came out to greet me. I rolled down the window and he started taking these deep breaths ...inhaled then exhaled with a m-m-m-m. Then he asked me what perfume was I wearing. So I told him L'Interdit. Of course that wasn't what he was smelling. It was the Fabreze, Downy scent I had sprayed earlier. But that didn't stop me from going on about L'Interdit being a fragrance that was created especially for Audrey Hepburn by Givenchy and then that led to a discussion over the role she played in My Fair Lady which he was familiar as his sister played the role in a local theater for years. This conversation went on for a good five minutes before we got to the business of the car. Then he asked if I was returning the car with a full tank of gas as per the agreement and I was a quarter of a tank short. I offered to pay for the shortage but he said because he was so infatuated with my perfume that the gas was on him!

Afterward I got a big chuckle over this man "infatuated" with my Fabreze Downy eau de toilette but maybe I laughed too soon. When unpacking I sprayed a few items of clothing with Fabreze that I did not wear, before hanging them in the closet. I ended up wearing one of those items the other day and my husband started sniffing much like the guy at the car rental and said, "m-m-m-m you smell wonderful." 

Now I am a pretty frugal woman. L'Interdit is priced around $85.00 a bottle and can only be found in better department stores.  Fabreze costs around $5.00 a bottle and can be found in any supermarket.  So in conclusion if a woman's purpose in wearing perfume is to awaken the olfactory of the opposite sex, the winning combination appears to be whipping up a batch of cinnamon rolls and spraying her clothes with Fabreze Downy April Fresh allowing her to bank the $80.00 savings toward her next vacation.
